Without prison time, it’s unlikely the Wizards would have a sustainable case to terminate the contract. With it, it’s possible. Whatever the circumstances, the process of trying could have damning consequences should they lose and Arenas eventually returns from a league suspension. The relationship is already fractured beyond repair. A vicious, nasty fight with Arenas could ultimately unseal and unleash whatever secrets lay within the walls of the Verizon Center. The Wizards will be taking on the wrath of Arenas, the players union and ultimately putting themselves on trial for a culture of enablement that existed for years with the clown prince of basketball. This case has polarized the Wizards’ locker room – pitting the front office and players against each other – and an unprecedented fight to terminate Arenas’ contract could unravel the franchise. The Wizards better hope they win, because the possibility of trying to reintegrate Arenas into an organization that tried to take away his contract could have colossal complications. "If they try to terminate his contract and fail, they’re in big trouble," said a source familiar with the Wizards-Arenas dynamic. "The Wizards don’t want Arenas back in the locker room after they’ve tried to screw him."

Adrian Wojarowski, kind of proving that Arenas isn't coming back to the Wizards no matter what happens to Gilbert this afternoon.
